Weather Kits

The weather kits are now ready to give out. Each has weather record cards to fill in, a pen and pencil and a digital window thermometer.

Everyone who answered the advert calling for participants are now on the list for receiving a kit and they can all start to collect data for the project. As it goes i'll not get over to Haworth to hand them out for a couple of weeks - and at the same time i'll install the weather station - so it'll be early October that the project properly gets underway.

Record Cards

My weather record cards are back from the printers and they look  great.

Part of the Bronte Weather Project involves members of the local community around Haworth being weather data collectors for me. I'm asking people to record the temperature every day for a year, plus I want everyone to write down their daily observations or particular weather notes.

It's a lot to ask: to keep a weather diary for me for a whole year, but i already have 10 willing participants - the ideal amount of people i was looking for. All the record cards for the year will go into a small archive to be held at the Parsonage Museum when the project is over.

So the little kit that each person will receive is nearly ready to hand out and weather data collecting can begin.
